It's the interplay between water and paint that makes this medium so exciting. It's no wonder, then, that wet-into-wet is one of the most popular methods for painting in watercolor. This unique book/DVD workshop shows you how to "go with the flow," moving watercolor across the page to create gorgeous paintings.
- Covers everything from selecting the best papers, paints and brushes, to achieving intense color passages, the illusion of depth and lively shadows.
- 10 exercises and 15 step-by-step demonstrations illustrate important lessons on shapes, complementary colors, masking fluid, glazing and more.
- Techniques are illustrated with Birgit O'Connor's bold and beautiful flowers, but are applicable to any subject.
- DVD shows key techniques in action - blending colors, creating hard and soft edges, and painting water drops - as well as troubleshooting common problems with washes.
Watercolor has a reputation for being unpredictable. But the secret to success, as you'll learn here, is using the right amount of water, which lets you have more control ... and fun!
